Flammable Clothing Injury Attorney
When clothing catches fire and burns the victim, an essential question needs to be answered: What caused the fire? While your clothing may have burned, the clothing itself was not the fire's cause. Does the clothing meet national standards for fire retardant performance?
By establishing the reason for the fire, the Walkup, Melodia law firm can help you recover the compensation you need for recovery from burn injuries.
Burn injuries are extremely painful. The medical issues can be complex and include years of skin grafting and surgery. It is important to discuss your situation with a burn injury attorney who has the experience and knowledge to fully assess all possible avenues for compensation.
All clothing will burn given enough heat and flames. But when a fabric does not meet minimal standards, it will ignite easily-perhaps with only a fireplace spark. In those cases, the manufacturer can be held accountable for burn injuries. Prompt investigation is key.
